On average Cumbria Police deal with over 17 incidents of domestic violence every day across the county with almost half of these being against people who have experienced violence before.
Cumbria Police are committed to supporting those who are affected by domestic violence, protecting the victims and bringing the offenders to justice. In order to do this we work closely with our partners and have a multi-agency approach and together we can make a difference.
